Actress Jayne Mansfield was one of the more successful heirs to the throne of Marilyn Monroe, although a tragic early death would end her brief career all too soon. Mansfield first made headlines with a nude pictorial in Playboy and a highly publicized run on Broadway in "Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?" in 1955. Early hit films such as "The Girl Can't Help It" (1956) and the film version of "Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?" (1957) made her a household name and bona fide movie star. Mansfield was tragically killed in a horrendous car accident in Louisiana at the age of 34. She would be remembered for her unabashed spirit and vivaciousness as well as her talent, and mourned for the future opportunities, both professional and personal, denied her by such an early demise.
